The FINANCIAL -- The issue of entering the US market is quite relevant for all Ukrainian agricultural producers. Therefore, both agricultural business and the Ministry of Agrarian Policy have to join their efforts to achieve the maximum results, declared Oleksiy Pavlenko, Minister of Agrarian Policy and Food of Ukraine, on September 22.
According to him, the distribution center will become the good platform for successful positioning of Ukrainian producers. The reporting structure is being created in the USA with participation of Ukrainian and US investors. It is the special tool for communication with the US trade networks, the platform for presentation of the interests of Ukrainian producers. The distribution center will assist in effectively solving all organizational issues and coordinating the trade policy.
Also, O.Pavlenko noted that the producers of fat-and-oil, alcohol and confectionery commodities are the most successful exporters to the USA.
Ukrainian agricultural products can be attractive for the US market in terms of high-quality and purity of organic production. During 8 months of 2015, Ukraine significantly increased the exports of sunflower oil to the USA - up 57% (3.9 mln USD), spirit – up 23% (1.1 mln USD), cheese and yogurt – up 76% (283 thsd USD), as well as juice and honey, informed the Minister.
O.Pavlenko noted that both parties realize large-scale joint projects: Ukrainian-American Agrarian Congress, Investment Forum, etc. Such events bring the Ukrainian and US companies to permanent business relationship.
